By the time you get through the end of this list, you’ll realize you’ve experienced at least 80% of these crushes! There’s no escaping it. When a crush takes hold, it might be years before you get over it. But here they are in all their glory!
1. Celebrity Crush
Crushing on celebrities is a rite of passage. At whatever age you’re in, you will have crushed on a celebrity at some point. From 2009-2010, Gerard Butler was my ultimate celebrity crush! You eventually get over these crushes because they likely won’t be realized, but you still crush on them anyway.
2. Never Mind Crush
So you’ve had your eye on the cute guy you see on your way to class for quite some time. You’ve been exchanging glances for weeks and now you’ve worked up the courage to actually speak to the guy and you’re just like: NEVERMIND. It could be that he’s not very bright or that he’s an egotistical jerk.
3. Fictional Crush
If you didn’t have a crush on Aladdin as a kid, then you were obviously watching the wrong Disney movies. And when Titanic came out, everyone was crushing on Jack. Let’s face it.
4. Convenient Crush
So, the convenient crush occurs when you’re alone at a party and all your friends are paired up and only you and this other loner haven’t coupled up. It only makes sense that you should crush on this person because they’re the only one there that’s available.
5. Stranger Crush
This crush happens when you’re just walking down the street and you glance at someone who’s pretty easy on the eyes. Unfortunately, you’ll never see this person again!
6. Holiday Crush
When you’re vacationing and you’re caught up in the moment of meeting new people, you have a tendency of developing crushes on people who you’ll probably not feel the same way about once the trip is over. It’s just a consequence of being in a different environment.
7. Instagram Crush
This is a crush type dedicated to all the hot people on instagram like Nick Bateman, who if you’re not following right now, you should make it a point to @nick__bateman. You’re welcome!
8. Same Sex Crush
Sometimes you crush on people of the same sex. Mila Kunis would be my ultimate girl crush. It’s just a fact of life. If you’re a guy and you don’t have a crush on Michael Fassbender, then you’re lying to yourself!
9. Rebound Crush
If you just got out of relationship and you’ve set your sights on another love interest to get you out of the relationship blues, a rebound crush is exactly what you’re experiencing.
As much as we hate to admit it, crushes are a lot of fun!
